First of all, congratulations—after the months of planning and making decisions, you have made it to the day before your wedding. Most pre-wedding preparations have been completed, but some tasks still need to be finalized!
It’s a night full of excitement and energy, and it’s important to keep calm so you wake up feeling refreshed and rested on your wedding day. Here is what to do the evening before your wedding to ensure you’re at your best on the big day!
1-Pack All Personal Items for the Morning
Besides having all your wedding essentials ready, pack a clutch bag with all the items you’ll need tomorrow (hair accessories, jewelry, make-up kit, robes, undergarments, comfortable shoes, vendor tips, etc.), and ask any of your bridesmaids to take care of it until it’s time to take it out!
2-Gather a Survival Kit
Make sure you have the wedding day survival kit ready to avoid last-minute panics! It could be a small bag of things like a mini sewing kit, tissues, Band-Aids, safety pins, hairspray, pain reliever, water bottle, etc.!
3-Do Some Beauty Prep
Make sure you look amazing on your wedding day with pampering and some skincare—but only use those beauty products you’ve used before and you know you’re ok with, so you don’t risk a breakout!
4-Stay Out of the Sun
If it’s a bright sunny day, it’s always best to wear sunscreen and stay in the shade, especially during the middle of the day. You don’t want to risk worse burns or weird tan lines!
5-Watch Something that’ll Make You Happy
In the spirit of putting yourself in a happy mood, watch some funny YouTube videos or something enjoyable and light-hearted on Netflix, or search for your favorite romantic comedy show.
6-Write a Cute Note to Your Partner
Write a short and sweet love note to your future spouse the night before your wedding. It’s a good idea to rekindle or even affirm your love for each other.
7-No More Wedding Tasks
Don’t start writing vows, speeches, or completing DIY the night before your big day. Make sure your wedding eve is free of wedding tasks so you can rest properly and just chill.
8-Eat Something Healthy
Stick with fresh fruits or something super healthy! Ordering greasy pepperoni passion pizza can be tempting, but eating greasy and salty foods the night before your big day is a big mistake! It can disrupt your sleep and cause bloating too.
9-Drink Water and Avoid Alcohol
It’s common to drink alcohol on the wedding eve! But don’t go crazy. Instead, focus on drinking water and making sure you’re fully hydrated. Keep one or two glasses of water nearby. This will help you avoid any dehydration and make you feel refreshed.
10-Go to Bed Early
Say goodbye to everyone in the group chats, turn your phone on silent and go to bed early. It is important to sleep early because the more you sleep, the better you’ll feel. You will also feel more relaxed when you take a break from your phone.
